How about some coffee while listening to the divine Bach? It is possible in “Helikon-Opera”!

Music and coffee lovers perfectly remember those fragrant coffee performances in the Opera cafe of  "Helikon". This season the theatre once again invites spectators into the Princess Shakhovskaya Hall for a cup of coffee at the famous "Kaffeekantate". After all, this is the purpose the cantata was written for. This was literally the first commercial of the invigorating drink...

The great maestro Johann Sebastian Bach made up the lovely little thing to attract visitors to the Zimmermann coffee house in Leipzig. Since then, coffee has become the favourite drink of millions of people who cannot even imagine a coffee-free life by now. Many Helikonians start their day with a cup of coffee, humming a melody from the cantata: "Ah! How sweet coffee tastes! Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine!" And later in the evening after a performance they treat the audience with a fragrant drink made during an intricate opera dialogue. We promise that you will enjoy the magic music of the great Bach and the wonderful taste of real Julius Meinl coffee!
